The New York Times published a new interview with Reese and Jennifer Aniston last week, to promote The Morning Show. The two talk about how they incorporated COVID and changes in the workplace relating to sexual harrassment into season 2. Reese and Jennifer were also photographed for the magazine.

‘The Morning Show’ Remakes Itself. Again. The topical news drama, which reoriented its first season in response to the #MeToo movement, was forced by the pandemic to rewrite Season 2 as well.
The second season of “The Morning Show,” the starry Apple TV+ series about a “Good Morning America”-style talk show, was six weeks into filming in March 2020 when everything suddenly stopped cold.
“It was a Wednesday night, and we were discussing a scene that I had to shoot the next day,” recalled Jennifer Aniston, who plays one of the co-anchors of the fictional show-within-the-show and is also an executive producer of the series. “We were getting emails saying that this big company and that big company were shutting down. And then we hear that Tom and Rita got sick” — that would be Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, who contracted Covid early in the pandemic — “and all of a sudden the world is caving in on us.”
The production shut down March 11, the cast and crew scattered and the producers pondered how the show could go ahead. And when they returned (remotely) and decided to rework the season, their most immediate challenge was how to incorporate coronavirus into the story line, when the pandemic had just begun and no one knew how it would play out.
This mirrored, in fact, what happened during the first season, when events in the world — in that case, the ructions over the #MeToo movement — overtook what had been the script.
“The Morning Show,” introduced to great fanfare as the marquee program on the new Apple TV+ streaming service in 2019, was loosely inspired by Brian Stelter’s nonfiction book “Top of the Morning,” about the cutthroat politics of morning television. But while at first it was concerned mostly with the infighting between Alex Levy (Aniston) and her co-anchor Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), it revamped itself with broader ambitions that reflected the changes wrought by #MeToo.
The Gallery has been updated with posters and high quality stills from The Morning Show Season 2, along with HD screencaptures from various featurettes and trailers promoting the new season. We’ll have HD screencaptures from the first 3 episodes up this week…

As expected, Reese appeared on the Stand Up To Cancer telecast this weekend – it aired yesterday, but was probably filmed on Friday (?). Reese opened the telecast talking about the impact of cancer and how the past 18 months have taught us not to take things for granted, as well as how the organisation started through “collaboration not competition”.

“I’m passionate about what I do. I love making movies and television shows. I feel so lucky when I stand on set, and years of experience have stacked together to create this time in my life where I can really add, and I can really listen, and I can really be a problem solver, and I can always make something better. That’s such a great feeling. To feel purposeful and useful at work. I also love making people’s lives a tiny bit easier, whether you provide something that’s a reprieve from their daily life, whether it’s a smile you put on their face.”
